Yeah, it isn't working with jack_fst at all, after more experimentation.
It just hangs and I have to manually kill it all. Running under
vstserver, though, I get a unresolved symbol error when it tries to load
the DLL, and it's unusable with that as well.

They are installed in a subdirectory directly under the directory where
the VSTi dll installed. I notice the manufacturer (GMedia) has a small
utility to run the VSTi as a standalone application now. I might try
that and see if it works under Wine.
